How To Increase Creativity... Set Deadlines!


Deadlines are something all of us face from time to time. We face deadlines whenever we set even a small goal and commit to accomplish it... that's when deadlines becomes important and valuable to us.

Why is a deadline so important?... Without one... many ofour projects would, be put off, or eliminated completely.The closer we get to a deadline the more our thoughts,ideas, imagination and creativity go to work to help us meetthe deadline.

Daily... many of us set goals to start projects, completeand send out ezines, finish articles, or finish writing asales page for our websites. How many times do we put it off till the last minute?

Then we remember, were committed... and have a deadline to meet on the project. That's when deadlines show their value and importance. Because, a deadline gets our juices flowing with new thoughts and ideas so we can get into action and complete the job... sometimes at the last minute.

Even small goals take commitment and deadlines toaccomplish. Either they're important enough, to make acommitment to doing at a certain time, or we eliminate thegoal completly.

My ezine goes out on the 4th and 18th of every month. Sometimes a day or two before it goes out... the deadline getsme into action. Thoughts, commitment and imagination go to work to motivate me to complete it on time ... and my ezine goes out at the specified date.

The importance of a deadline is easy to overlook . I hadn'trealized their value, or hadn't thought much about it untilwriting these comments. Without any kind of a deadline onprojects ... I wonder how many would get completed?

Have you noticed as you get closer to a deadline, you become more creative? Deadlines cause our thoughts and imagination to become active giving us ideas to get the job done before the deadline.

Deadlines are what causes us to get into action... sometimes at the last minute, to complete a project or goal we set with commitment days before.
